One Military Jacket, Three Ways

Amelia McDonell-Parry / August 7, 2013

The military-inspired utility jacket has been staple of the average college kid’s wardrobe since the dawn of time (or at least since the invention of canvas). While it’s certainly a casual cover-up, there’s more than one way to wear it. In honor of Schooled Week, I’ve put together three outfits — for class, for a date, and for a party — that show just how versatile this jacket is.
